The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of training protocols for whole body vibration (WBV) training through the modulation of the frequency and amplitude of vibration. Despite the large number of studies regarding effects of such training, there is still lack of knowledge regarding optimum training protocols. The study analyzed the influence(More)
 The use of electrical stimulation has been studied in a variety of wounds emphasizing different variables with regard to provision of therapy. The purpose of this prospective, randomized, controlled clinical study was to evaluate the effect of high-voltage electrical stimulation (HVES) on nonhealing, lower-extremity, Stage II and Stage III(More)
The aim of this study was to compare five types of compression therapy in venous leg ulcers (intermittent pneumatic vs. stockings vs. multi layer vs. two layer short stretch bandages vs. Unna boots). Primary study endpoints were analysis of changes of the total ulcer surface area, volume and linear dimensions inside observed groups. The secondary end points(More)
Compression therapy--including inelastic, elastic, and intermittent pneumatic compression--is the standard of care for venous ulcers (VLUs) and chronic venous insufficiency, but there is no consensus in the literature regarding the most effective type of compression therapy. A prospective, randomized, clinical pilot study was conducted among 70 patients(More)
The objective of this paper was to evaluate the effect of high voltage stimulation (HVS) on the process of healing of crural ulceration. Three comparative groups of patients, A, B and C, were drawn at random from patients with venous crural ulceration. Thirty-three patients in group A were subjected to treatment with HVS. In the course of treatment,(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate early and long-term results of physical methods in the treatment of venous leg ulcers. METHOD In group A after surgical operation, 40 patients were treated with the high-voltage stimulation (HVS) (100 µs, 100 Hz, 100 V) and drug therapy. In group B after operation, 37 patients were treated with ultrasound (0.5 W/cm(2), 1 MHz) and(More)
Although the total “Timed-Up-and Go” test (TUG) performance time can characterize an age-related decline of general mobility, this result alone doesn’t give any detailed information about the test subtasks. The primary objective of the study was to identify in nursing home women a variable extracted from instrumented TUG (iTUG) that is the best predictor of(More)
Venous crural ulceration typically affects elderly people, frequently burdened with other diseases which provide counter-indications for surgery. With those patients in mind, search for new efficient methods to treat the disease is under way. The goal of the paper was to evaluate the impact of ultrasound at two power densities from the range commonly used,(More)
BACKGROUND The "euthyroid sick syndrome" may intensify dysfunction of the heart during acute myocardial ischemia. The present research was undertaken to outline the effects of preischemic short-term triiodothyronine (T3) administration on hemodynamic function and metabolism of the myocardium during reperfusion. MATERIAL/METHODS Thirty-six isolated working(More)
The objective of this paper was to evaluate effect of laser's biostimulation on the process of healing of crural ulcerations. Three comparative groups of patients, A, B and C, were made at random from the patients with venous crural ulcerations. The group A consisted of 17, the group B 15, the group C 17 patients. The patients in all comparative groups were(More)
